Newcita Plus Tablet Description

Newcita Plus is a medication that helps in treating anxiety. It contains two active ingredients, escitalopram and clonazepam. Escitalopram acts on the centres of the brain. This increases the lev

els of a natural chemical known as serotonin. The increase in serotonin helps relieve the symptoms of anxiety. The active ingredient clonazepam acts on the centres of the brain and decreases the occurrence of unnecessary and distressing thoughts of fear and anxiety. Newcita Plus may lead to certain side effects such as nausea, vomiting, loss of sleep, sleepiness, constipation, and fatigue. It may also affect the sexual drive by decreasing the sexual desire and causing difficulty in erection or ejaculation. If any of these symptoms are experienced, please seek medical attention. Newcita Plus should be used with caution in patients of liver and kidney diseases. It may be unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. Newcita Plus should not be consumed with alcohol.
